About this tutor

I have been doing private tutoring since the 1980's.  I have a teaching credential in math and chemistry and have tutored hundreds of students in those subjects over the past 30 years or so.  I taught full time at the high school and middle school level for 10 years in private schools in California and overseas.  I also currently do sub teaching, so i am able to keep current with the curiculum in the schools.  With the current shelter in place restrictions, I have set up an account on Zoom, so I can now do online tutoring.   When these restrictions are lifted, I can also come to your home for lessons if you prefer, or we can meet in a convenient library.  I also have a home office where you can come to me if that is more convenient.  

I have been tutoring for many years.  I really enjoy the chance to work with students on an individual basis.  With math and chemistry I believe students learn much more readily in an individual lesson rather than in a large classroom setting.  When the student has the aha moment that they really understand how to do the problems, then you know you are really helping them learn.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

If the student is in school, I will discuss with his or her parents about what the student's needs are.  Is there a need to go back and learn material that was missed earlier, or does the student just need to understand what he or she is working on right now.  I typically use the student's homework assignments to teach the concepts and problem solving skills needed to succeed on tests that will be coming up.
